Chateau Lalande de Gravet is a parcel of vines just under six hectares with vines over 45 years old. It is ideally located at the foot of the Saint-Émilion hill on predominately sandy gravel with clay soils. This soil type is rich in minerals and nutrients which results in a more fully-developed profile in the wine.
